When I have a page with the URI lets say
www.example.com/page there might be the possibility that users or links end up sending the user to pages like this:
I could just use a canonical on the page which refers to
www.example.com/page, but my fist question is whether a redirection via PHP with:
header ("Location: http://www.example.com/page")
might be more useful. It is definitely more user-friendly, which should be the overall goal.
My second question now is, in case I use the canonical, should I include the canonical tag into the page standard html or should I just put it in there via PHP if the canonical differs from the current page URI?
